Net Neutrality

Maybe you have heard about this, its been discussed in federal legislation for a couple years now.  I just stumbled across this video that gives a rather rudimentary, yet clear and accurate explanation of ‘Net Neutrality’

Take a look.  If you haven’t heard about it, you should pay attention.  The Internet has experienced tremendous growth and advances w/out having the bureaucratic hand of government getting its sticky fingers on it.  Internet Service Providers today provide unfettered access to the internet (which is one of the things this legislation aims to establish), and work with law enforcement voluntarily and freely to provide information used to convict people doing things that are illegal.

This is another instance of government trying to edge its way into an industry that does not need regulation, to placate lobbyists and establish new taxes.

If you haven’t heard about this, do some research on your own, and read up on it.  Then write your congressperson.

The Long of It

Some folks have asked me about how to get a special image next to their comments and/or posts.  Some of you already know this is called an ‘avatar.’   I’ve decided to use ‘gravatars’ on this site.  Globally recognized avatars, use your email address to look up your gravatar from a central site.  Most folks seem to be using gravatar.com for this central look up.

The Short of It

You can set up a gravatar by doing the following steps:

1. go to gravatar.com and entering your email address

That’s it!  You’re done!   If you have trouble, just ask!

What’s new with you?

I have been spending the last few days trying to pull my pictures out of this little pocket digital camera. I am sure that is suppose to make my life easier.  Dragging around my hon-ken big camera everywhere I go not only gets heavy, I tend to look like a overzealous mommy. And then I get asked to do things that requires using that hon-ken big camera, and I do not know how to say no. Getting back to this little digital camera, I have tried talking very nice to it… mean to it.. putting it down… everything.. Then this morning, I plug it in and Voila! the pictures jump right in to my computer…. What the heck!!!! Ugh!!!!
